GIF: Carlos Torres punches himself in the head after blowing game

Thursday was not a good day for Mets reliever Carlos Torres. The team’s usually reliable relief workhorse entered the game with the score tied in the 12th inning, then allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk to effectively lose the game. It was ugly.

Rather than toss a water cooler or even punch a wall (with his non-pitching hand, of course), Torres opted for self-abuse and punched himself in the head a few times.

I just hope he doesn’t suffer from occasional bouts of ED.

Torres was left out there a loooong time last night.

2 rights & a left; no knock down. Was he even trying?

Had Torres done this for the Rangers, he would have broken both hands and given himself a concussion. Probably blown out a UCL too.

That's the Mets franchise summarized in one GIF.

Been there. Though it usually only takes one for me to realize that was a bad idea.

Tried it, but I punch so weakly it lasted the whole 15 rounds.

Save the punches for Alderson, Carlos.
